About Cherubini's Medea

Having triumphed at the Met in some of the repertory’s fiercest soprano roles, Sondra Radvanovsky opens the new season as the mythic sorceress who will stop at nothing in her quest for vengeance—a tour-de-force role made famous by opera’s ultimate diva, Maria Callas. The Met premiere of Cherubini’s rarely performed masterpiece marks Radvanovsky’s fourth new production with director David McVicar, who also designed the sets for this vivid, atmospheric staging, simultaneously classical, updated, and timeless. Joining Radvanovsky are tenor Matthew Polenzani as Medea’s Argonaut husband, Giasone; soprano Janai Brugger as her rival for his love, Glauce; bass Michele Pertusi as her father, Creonte, the King of Corinth; and mezzo-soprano Ekaterina Gubanova as Medea’s confidante, Neris. In an impressive fall trifecta at the Met, Maestro Carlo Rizzi conducts Medea, in addition to Don Carlo and Tosca.

Dark, Exceptional lead singer, Lesser-known opera

See it if you like your revenge operas on full tilt: larger than life emotions, tender love scenes, brutal betrayals,violent endings & wronged heroine

Don’t see it if you're not a fan of McVicar's always-somber dark staging (large mirror provides some nice visual touches, but overall the stage is boring).

Slow, Masterful, Intense, Riveting, Great singing

Don’t see it if you don’t like opera or Greek tragedy, or want to see great ensemble opera. The beginning and every other scene without Radvanovsky dragged
